The Philadelphia Inquirer: May 8th, 1914

Newspapers are one of the best resources for tracking down ancestors – the oldest newspapers you can find will probably have obituaries and may even list marriages as well.  Even if you can’t find the person you’re looking for, you’ll still be able to get a feel for the time period and learn about what was going on in the area.


Here’s an issue of the Philadelphia Inquirer from Friday, May 8th, 1914. I’ll be posting some of the names listed in the obituaries and marriage announcements over the next few days.
